Pros

It's Still, competing against  Mazda models and;Toyota RAV 4 for over a decade.

Cons

It's odd handle parking brake, it's odd short bump into lever gear shifter, dangling rear (middle) seat belt?? It is made onto; the left side in the roof area which; is very ODD for Honda to come up with.

Unique Sporty Fun With; Extreme Worry Free Relability. — It's Name, and qualities the CRV has to; offer and to Showcase the options the lx, ex, ex-l models have first of all. I plan to; lease a new one when this one, is paid off in two years and I am happy about that. I enjoy driving my CRV locally and; I do feel more at ease when; it is at my work place.

Great All Round Vehicle — This car is great handling all round use vehicle. I feel confident whenever I drive this car. Very versatile car that fits into any scene... Little league and long family road trips. The weather is not an issue when you drive this vehicle.

Pros

Great gas mileage.  Good ride.  Decent power for a four cylinder.  Lots of cargo space.  AWD is great in the winter.

Cons

Only con is it is an LX model so does not have all the "bells and whistles".

A Really Great Mid-sized Suv — We brought the car for my wife in 2008. Previous owner put 76,000 miles on it in two years driving for business so almost all highway miles, so we knew we were getting a good used vehicle. Super reliable and had plenty of room for her to haul stuff around. Gas mileage is great and plenty of zip for a four cylinder engine.

Pros

Practical, reliable and good selection of standard features. AWD system is capable. It's obviously not a full fledged off roading 4 Wheel Drive but its off road capabilities are surprising. Tows my motorcycle, kids and luggage through the smokie mountians very well.

Cons

Front seats are tolerable but not comfortable. Everyone who owns a 1st or 2nd gen CRV feels the same way. Fuel mileage is not as good as I had hoped. Most of my driving is interstate commute at 70mph and I consistently get 24mpg. Best ever was 26mpg on a long trip at 55 to 60 mph.

Extremely Reliable And Repair Free For 178,000 Miles. — First and only brand new car I have ever purchased. It's an EX model with lots of standard features but lacks interior details that a comparable Chevy or Ford would have that make them look nicer. Can't beat the reliability of a Honda. I've bought 1 battery, replaced front and rear pads, changed spark plugs and serpentine belt in the 8 years and 178,000 miles. Hard to describe the front seats. They aren't bad but they aren't comfortable either. And everyone who owns a CRV seems to agree on that point. Rear seats are awesome! Cargo room is great. Towing is adequate. It's not a trail riding, rock climbing off road vehicle. But it's capabilities are surprising.

Love This Car — I love the Honda CRV. Reliable, excellent on snow and ice. Good gas mileage. Lots of cargo/trunk space. Has held its value above my expectations. Has almost 200,000 miles and has had no major problems. Great car for anyone!

Exceelent Reliability — This has been the finest car I have ever owned. It never once failed to start and was impressive in winter weather. I would not allow my daughter to drive a car that was unreliable or had mechanical issues, she attends a college far from home. I fell she is safe everytime she drives it.

Great For Family Or An Active Lifestyle. — I was a coach and always had more than enough room to carry equipment and players. My kids are grown now and looking to downsize. But I am going to miss driving the CRV. If you have never had one, you are in for a treat.

Well Built Car If Not A Little Expensive For The Ex-l Trim By jessed75
